The box sprays water up into the wheel wells that drips back down at the line causing excess spin or bring a portable torch with you but if you go that rout be careful of that don't want to blow out your tire.lol the goal is to heat your tires up so they kinda melt a little so you will get better traction. but no need to lower the amount of nitrous you are using just don't spray off the ling and you should be gold.
Thanks, I have a window switch I need to wire in soon, hope that helps
